Any DDR3 dual channel kit 1600MHz and CL9 would be fine.
Most users including myself don't o'c ram = the returns in performance are miniscule.
Lower profile ram kits are preferrable for heatsink compatibilty.
That means Corsair Vengeance(52mm tall) isn't a good choice.
Vengeance LP,GSkill Ripjaws X,Gskill ARES,and Kingston Hyper Blue are good choices,

And make sure it's 1.5v.

It really depends on which CPU cooler you plan on using, I have a P8Z68-V Pro and use the Corsair Vengeance 1600 DDR3 and have no issues but I am using a Corsair H100 Cpu cooler.

Thank You
I am using Coolmaster 212 plus.
I see the most of memory on the asus memory test list 90 1.65V
What difference 1.5v and 1.65v.
This one ok right

It's cheaper to get a 16GB kit of 4 x 4GB. $94 if you order your way but only $90 for this and you get a free 4GB flash card.

The memory controller is on the CPU itself in a Sandy Bridge system and going over 1.5v can damage the chip.

Thank You for your advice, but the problem with 4pcs kit, if 1 of them failed you have to ship out to vedor for the hold kit 4pcs, at this time you have to wait for 5 to 10 business day to get your system back online.
that reason why I try to get 2 kits of 8G 2x4, if 1 of them failed i still has 8G to use for keep system online.

I feel that is an overly cautious mentality. I purchase 4x4GB and it was fine -- you'll hear stories of bad RAM often but it isn't common.

By your logic, it would be better to buy 4 individual sticks of 4GB RAM. What if 1 stick from each of the 2x kits fail?

I think the better approach is to pick up 2x 4GB first -- you may find that you don't even need 16GB of RAM. Then pick up more if you find you need it or if there are problems with the first set.

75% I think I need 16G, becuase I am playing game less than I am using photoshop, lightroom3 and video editing.

These set of 4x4GB DDR3 are fast because they are running at 2133 MHZ. Look at this link:

Ignore this. Both the voltage and the speed will void your CPU warranty.

Sandy Bridge chips have the memory controller on the CPU itself and as such are largely insensitive to RAM faster than 1.5v DDR3 1600 cas 9. Anything faster is a waste of money. Running anything over 1.5v can potentially damage you CPU.

G.Skill Snipers, people are so paranoid about the 1.5v, the operating voltage for sandybridge is 1.5-1.65v on most overclocks and XMP if you have auto voltage set for your RAM it will up the voltage to match the latencies, you can always fix your voltage to 1.5v but will likely get get rubbish timings, continuous usage over 1.65v or if you use a pre clocked 1.6v set then your OC leeway will be very little. You can always buy the Gskill Sniper 1.25 or 1.3v kits to save a little on the consumption side.

People have been paranoid about RAM voltage after CPU RMAs were being declined because of using RAM faster than 1333 and voltage higher than 1.5v. The memory controller is on the CPU in a Sandy Bridge system and going out of spec can damage the CPU.



If you want to exceed those specs and still have a CPU warranty then you need to buy the extra overclockers insurance.
